at home, this is what president george w. bush's exit from the international stage looked like. >> so what if the guy threw a shoe at me? >> that happened during george w. bush's final trip to the two war zones he led america into as president. make no mistake, i certainly do not condone shoe throwing or any other kind of attempted assault or disrespect of a world leader for that matter. but the shoe throwing incident was sort of emblematic of bush era foreign policy. george w. bush did not play well with others on the international stage. and by the time he left office, his foreign policy agenda was deeply unpopular both overseas and at home. and that's where mitt romney's foray into foreign policy leadership comes in. with the modern disasters of his debut behind him, he granted an interview with an israeli newspaper ahead of his visit. the newspaper is part owned by billionaire donor sheldon adelson, so there's that. what is really important about the interview is that mitt romney, what mitt ram gnaw had to say about foreign policy. when asked about his response to the foreign response
resolution that calls on israelis and palestinians to work it out. president clinton, george w. bush and obama have all refused. in the 2008 campaign, mr. obama declared his support for jerusalem as the israeli capital, but didn't preclude negotiations. romney himself has declined to criticize the president while abroad, but he unloaded on him earlier this week. >> president obama is fond of lecturing israel's leaders. he was even caught by a microphone deriding them. >> some saw the timing of the ceremony, a day before romney travels to israel, as an efforts to upstage him. democrats denied him. >> that's not true at all because it's john boehner and eric cantor who set the time frame for this. >> polls give the president a substantial lead over mitt romney among jewish voters, but not nearly as big as the lead he enjoyed over john mccain. the romney camp hopes just reducing the advantage will help change the outcome in november. brett? >> bret: wendell goler, thank you. the opening ceremony for the summer olympics is going on right now in london. more than 10,000 athletes from 200

. >> former president george w. bush will be skipping the republican national convention. mr. bush is grateful for the invitation but said he is enjoying his time off. the spokesperson said mr. romney will be a great president. >> and we want to turn back to our coverage of the shooting massacre in colorado. short time ago, police briefed the media on the latest on their investigation. >> and all of this comes as additional family and loved ones are speaking out about the who are filing sequence of events. we are live in aurora, colorado. sandra thanks for joining us. what can you tell us about the reports that we are hearing that holmes dyed his hair red and called himself the joker? >> that's right. federal law enforcement sources say that that is, in fact, the case. the suspect apparently dyed his hair head -- red and said he was the joker and they are trying to find out a motive and not releasing any evidence in the investigation so far but the real hot spot is the one-bedroom apartment that the 24-year-old lived in which was walking distance to t
, well i did it for ford in '76, but then again for george w. bush in 2000. i had a couple calls from prominent politicians who would say it would help me in my race back home if i was on the list. you are on the list. then somebody could leak the fact that they were on the list. but that was the big list. it was easy to get on the big list. the tough part is the small list. the one that is really under active consideration. and the test to get on the small list has to be is this person capable of being president of the united states. that's usually a very, very short list. >> what about the other considerations? can you bring a state? can you -- reach out to a specific demographic, woman, hispanic? >> those are important issues. but they should never be allowed to override the first proposition. and i think that, that was one of the problems mccain had. i like governor palin. i have met her the i know her. she is an attractive candidate. but based on her background she had only been governor for two years. i don't think she passed that test. >> being ready? >> being ready to take ove

last three presidents would be mitt romney, barack obama and george w. bush, three men who personally have very little love for politics, very little love for the sport of it all, very little love or understanding of the grand sweep of history, unlike say a bill clinton or a ronald reagan or an fdr. there just doesn't seem to be the joy in these guys either on the campaign trail or when they're governing. they seem to be -- well, at least the two that are running this time technocrats. >> they're competitive without being cheerful. i any what mark just said is exactly right, that politicians get in trouble when they act as though they're pundits or color commentators. you think about obama -- wandered into the truth but that editorial meeting in washington state in 2008 when he said reagan was transformative but clinton wasn't. >> nevada. >> reno. >> however true that might be, it was the wrong way to say it. >> you can't say it as a presidential candidate. >> the thing that really struck me about looking at romney in london was his lack of agility. it was this incredibly stiff presen
george w. bush was running for president he talked about a more humble foreign policy. obama promised to close down guantanamo. he extended many of president bush's policies. so it is hard to say at this stage of the game what mitt romney really means and what and how he might act as commander in chief. >> and in afghanistan and syria, dan, pretty general comments by governor romney, not real specific, particularly on syria which is the hottest issue now going. pretty much stayed a step back about saying what he would do. >> syria is a difficult issue. afghanistan the president said he is pulling troops down. it is difficult for romney to say i will push troops back up. >> particularly when the american public seems to be war weary and supports this withdrawal. >> i think matt made an important distinction that needs to be emphasized. this isn't just president obama this is modern democratic foreign policy doctrine calling it leading from behind. which means we only act until we get the support of allies report united nations and that is what we have done in iran and labia and that wa
have done in the past, as well. like when former president george w. bush spoke at virginia tech university, just one day after 32 people were killed in a mass shooting on their campus in virginia. >> today i'd like to assure you a parent's love is never far from their child's heart. and as you draw closer to your own families in the coming days, i ask you to reach out to those who ache for sons and daughters who will never come home. >> reporter: so, when a particular part of the country is hurting the american public aren't the only ones paying attention. presidents do take note as well and, presidents do their best to help people heal but, jamie, the people of aurora, colorado are a long way away from being back to normal. >> jamie: probably settling in as well. it is terrible. thank you so much, peter. >> eric: a "fox news alert" now, this has to do with syria. where there is continued heavy fighting, reported in two of its largest cities. this as rebel forces battle government troops. there is ongoing fighting reported in the streets of the capital, damascus and it puts pres
there are only two entities in washington that lower approval raidings than george w. bush congress and the media so what are you going to do about it. and they continued to make things worse for themselves and for journalism with things like this. this is not the first time. this happened when congress woman gabrielle giffords was shot. everybody goes to the tea party website to see if there is a connection. i don't know any tea party member whose first and foremost passion is about the second amendment. the fact that they were looking for some connection immediately really is oh h offensive. >> mike: it would be like taking brian ross' name and saying we know there was a brian ross arrested for child molesting in upstate new york. >> oops, sore. >> karch: the wron sorry, wronn ross. >> is it more important to be right than it is to be first? >> i was the press secretary when the virginia tech shooting happened. when a crisis breaks, first reports are almost always wrong. hold back. wait a minute and let's see what the facts are. be rapid response even from a campaign side on the other side of t

people were killed in syrian violence today. >>> former president george w. bush is going to skip the republican national convention. in a statement to cnn, his spokesman says, quote, he supports governor romney and wants him to succeed. president bush is confident mitt romney will be a great president but he's still enjoying his time off the political stage. earlier this week, bush's father, former president george h.w. bush, announced he wouldn't be attending the convention either due to health reasons. that has been 351 days since the u.s. lost its top credit rating. what are we doing to get it back? knee d new data showing 29 states added jobs in june. unemployment rates rose in 27 states. part of the reason we might have seen the increase is more people who are out of work started looking for jobs. which increases the size of the labor pool. now let's send it back to don lemon in colorado with more of our breaking news coverage. don. >> all right, john, thank you very much. appreciate that. we're here at the scene where this horrific shooting happened just less than 24 hours
of nevada and financial hurdles facing voters there. former deputy assistant to george w. bush and chris former chief of staff to senator joe manchon. i'm going to start with you, chris. president obama is going to attending a convention in reno. as we know nevada's economy is depressed. high foreclosures. what can the president say to gain support there? >> i think the president needs to make the argument why he has a better vision than governor romney. with the economic policies, social policies, in this case the veterans issues. he has done a lot of in terms of veterans and focusing on veterans during his precedency. nevada has been a tough hit state economically. high foreclosures, he is going to address that, but i think one of key distinctions between the two candidates, which one better understands you. look at all the polls. the poll that stands out again and again. again, if you look at the polls, one that stands out again and again. that is huge advantage for the president. >> arthel: people want to be understood, they want their problems to be understood but they want results.
came when her husband came for re-election. and then governor george w. bush. his hands touching the wall. other famous faces elizabeth taylor, richard burton in 1975. and in 2000, ailing pope benedict xvi making hand historic trip attempting to build a stronger relationship with catholics and jews, we wish to commit ourselves to genuine brotherhood to the people. two more prayers added with quiet wishes from america. mr. and mrs. romney, writing the prayers together, adding to so many powerful moments at the western wall. david muir, abc news, jerusalem. >> and, again this is just about halfway through his international tour. he said, he said yesterday, that preventing iran from obtaining nuclear capabilities that is going to be his highest national security priority. >> right. and david, part of the interview, pressed him, said your strategy in terms of iran, israel doesn't seem too different from how the obama administration handed it. we will see if there is a strict difference here. some have been critical saying, israel, american tensions have never been worse than right no
of the george w. bush administration. has declared he is china's door mat. in a way no modern administration has been, mitt romney is calling him a door mat. he likes to make a big deal out of saying he as president would be more confrontational. mr. romney wrote on op ed saying he would take aggressive action against the second largest economy in the world. so aggressive he would start a war against the two greatest economies on earth. his plans were stated as a blunder. it was described as mr. romney's hulk policy. romney smash china. but for all mr. romney is turning green and shredding his shirts with biceps, when it comes to making real decisions about countries in the market place, mr. romney has not been all that big in confrontation in the real world. in his book no apology, president bush's design to stand up against china had done more harm than good. he called president obama's defense of american tire companies bad for the nation. so this is a test. this is an administration that even if you like what they have done has been not that great at chest bumping. rightly or wrongly, it's j
economic policies will be different from george w. bush. listen to this. >> one, take advantage of our energy resources. particularly natural gas, but also coal, oil, nuclear, renewables. number two, trade. i want to dramatically increa particularly with latin america. number four, show better training and education for our current workers and coming workers. and finally what i call restoring economic freedom. that means keep our taxes as low as possible. >> platitudes. i mean, first of all -- i want trade. sure. right? so some of that is platitudes. >> freedom, justice. >> freedom, justice, the american way. some of that is saying words that resonate. some of that is talking quite specifically about obama era policies. he's talking about keeping taxes low. i'm not sure what he thinks he means by that, but certainly in this moment, president obama has kept taxes extremely low. even in the context of our economic recovery. and i think what he means is maintaining the bush era tax cuts at the top. something that president obama has indicated. he thinks needs to expire for it to move towa
by the word choice, what he says or also by his body language? no one can forget president george w. bush 9/11 when he was in front of the classroom and you could see the demeanor of the president once we learned that information that he received the demeanor of him. that was as indelible as any word could have been. >> there is no dou the pictures here, the television matters. the sense of empathy that a president is able to convey by what he says and how he acts these are important things. i think going forward it becomes more important in terms of how he shows that he is a healer for the country. this is especially difficult now that we are in the middle of a very contentious political season where the president and candidate romney are not being very much healers. they are going at it and fighting pretty hard a moment like this makes that kind of politicking that much more discorted. >> very appreciated. >>> a lot of us are counting down to the olympic games. the opening ceremony is friday. the summer games are challenging athletes. it is also coinciding with the muslim holy month. it m
. in 2001, when president george w. bush decided to spend a large portion of the surpluses he inherited from president clinton to cut tax rates across the board, many democrats opposed it because the tax cuts were unfairly waited towards the highest-income americans. as a result of this opposition, republicans were forced to set the tax cuts to expire at the end of 2010. as 2010 drew to a close, president obama and many democrats in congress, including myself, supported extending the tax cuts for middle-class families but letting the lower rates on income above $200,000 for an individual and $250,000 for a family revert to the clinton-era levels, as was scheduled. senate republicans filibustered that effort, refusing to allow the middle class tax cut without a tax cut for america's wealthiest. not wanting tax rates to go up on middle-class families still struggling during the economy. the president and senate democrats reluctantly agreed to extend all of the tax cuts through this year. which brings us to now. once again these tax rates are set to expire. i would like to keep rates low for mi
george w. bush, i'm the daughter of liberian immigrants. liberian immigrants had a deferred action program that worked very well for many years. there is even a song out where liberian immigrants thank george w. bush, and that being one of those reasons. but i think we have to be, you know, really specific about the community we're talking about, these young people who are future scientists, doctors, lawyers, contributing to american society, aspiring citizens. rick: understood. >> and prioritize the prosecutions. martha: let me just say i think it's very important to focus on who we're talking about. and there are very, very many worthy individuals, and that's who the program is designed for. i think it's great that the worthy individuals could qualify for some relief. the concern is that there could be an individual who is 28 years old at the prime recruiting age for al-qaida who lies to the government, said he's been in the country since he's 7 years old and that individual just by saying he went to high school is now eligible to work in the united states. we've seen how the mex
obama is to blame. 23% say congress. 20% say wall street. and only 18% say george w. bush which is interesting because it was about a year ago when george bush and the president, current president are neck and neck. 66% of those who responded said that they believe the lousy jobs growth and slow recovery is a result of bad policy and the big question is whose policy? as you can see right there, a plurality say it's the current president. >> gallup does say the president's approval rating is approved for the third straight time but still under 50%. it's like 46.8% and more important, the question we have to you is do you commute in the same direction with your spouse? >> and is that a good idea? and is your marriage better off? do you have a better chance of surviving if you actually car pool together? i've been trying for years to get my husband to leave the house at the ungodly hour that i do. >> keep shake him. >> i would to spend so much more time together with him to talk about those little tasks that we have to get done at the house. he keeps saying, you know, i'd rather

led the way, actually, with the expansion in the money, the global aids fund under george w. bush, for which he is being heralded and bill clinton has led the way as well in communicating this around the world, the importance of all of this. hillary clinton added money to it this year. but at the same time, when will we see a vaccine? >> a vaccine is still in the stage of scientific discovery. we don't have a vaccine yet. we had a trial that was only moderately effective, not ready for prime time. but the scientific advances that will give us a vaccine and we can't predict when, if you put that in the combination of preventions, then that trajectory decrease will be even greater. >> dr. fauci, thank you for your leadership on this. it's really inspiring. we will continue this conversation throughout the year, not only when the world is watching. >> thank you. >>> up next, the politics of gun control. the candidates go on the record. you're watching "andrea mitchell reports." ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ i don't have to use gas. i am probably going to the gas station about once a month. drive a
the finger at obama followed by congress, wall street and last former president george w. bush. the romney campaign hopes to bounce on this and voter angs. listen to what he told me earlier today. >> i think the president made an error coming into office and deciding that the economy would take care of itself. he focused his energy on liberal plans he and his friends have been working on a at a time we should have been focused on getting the economy going and only encouraged job creation. most of the measures the president pursued hurt job creation. as a result we are still suffering. >> liberal plans blocking jobs and the economy. the country is at a crossroads. one leads us to european style government. the other leads to economic freedom. which road is america going to choose? new york university professor and long-time democratic strategist and friend robert schrum. and former house majority leader dick armey, co-chairman of freedom works. i thought the hill.com poll was really important sending a message that america is, indeed, at the crossroads. but people are going to vote for a ri
, there are only two entities in washington that have a lower approval rating than george w. bush, congress and the media, so what are you going to do about it. >> mike: good answer. >> an and they continue to make things worse for themselves and for journalism with things like this. and this is not the first time, this happened when congresswoman gabby giffords was shot and before and immediately everybody goes to the tea party website to see if there's a connection which i don't know any tea party person who's first and foremost passion is the second amendment. it is about the constitution and about debt and the deficit in government spending and that's what it's about. the, but the fact that they were looking for some connection immediately really is offensive. >> mike: well, and it would be like taking brian ross' name and saying there's a brian ross arrested for child molesting in upstate new york. we don't know if it's the same one. >> sorry, different brian ross. >> mike: yeah, later on saying. >> right. >> mike: and i know it behooves media people to be able to get to the story quic
